Clearing at York St John

Five steps to get a place

Find your course

Look at our courses to make sure that we have the right one for you.

Get in touch

Give us a call on 01904 809700 or if you don’t fancy speaking on the phone you can apply online.

Get an instant decision

In most cases, our friendly team can give you a decision on the spot and make you a verbal offer.

Confirm your offer

If we make you an offer, we will follow this up quickly with an email to formally confirm your offer.

Check your email

We’ll give you instructions about what you need to do next, including how to book accommodation (100% guaranteed) and how to accept your offer.

Normally this will take about 10 minutes from start to finish. If you are interested in Art and Design, Occupational Therapy or Primary Teaching, the process is a little different.

We want you to make the right choice, so we won’t put you under pressure with tight deadline to reply and we won’t bombard you with sales emails.

Our clearing commitment.

Our aim is to make clearing as simple for you as possible, so if you get in touch we ensure that you will:

  • Speak to an expert who can answer your questions.
  • Get a fast response - we won't keep you waiting.
  • Get the peace of mind of receiving a confirmation email in follow-up to a verbal offer.
  • Be clear about your next steps, how to make the most of our guaranteed first-year accommodation offer and what will happen at the start of term.
  • Be supported and not pressured. The decisions you make it clearing must be right for you. We are here to help.
